Ferister and Her Daughter
Digital Print, Acrylic Paint on paper
8” x 10”
My work displays a series of mixed media prints that creates a story line of vulnerable women, starting out as young adults to learning how to self-sustain themselves. The main idea is to bring awareness to the exploitation of women, particularly in Uganda, while also showing the progression and empowerment of women. While women continue to face oppression, labor, and struggles, they show strength when given the opportunity and resources for a new and safer way to provide for their family.
